The facility will be 10,000 square feet, about a third the size of the northeast Atlanta and Kennesaw locations (which opened in 2010 and 2014, respectively). Unlike those locations, this one will not offer fitness classes, such as yoga and pilates, but will have a workout room with cardio equipment and free weights.
MORE MIDTOWN DEVELOPMENT:
De-construction of the long, narrow space has begun; new elements, including 5,000-square-feet of bouldering wall, haven’t gone in yet.
Luke hopes for the new spot to open in early fall.
He imagines the bouldering-specific Midtown location will attract a specific demographic.
“Young professionals are usually a little bit more daring than the grown-up corporate America,” Luke said.
Stone Summit may open more Atlanta locations in the future and is soon starting construction on a facility in Dallas, Texas, Luke said.
Carter, which acquired the building in July 2015, hopes to attract growing technology companies. Bareburger and Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee Company have also been reported as tenants.
